Okay folks, not folks, and whatever else you care to be or not be.


Here we go. I am going to attempt the challenge I half-jokingly laid before the Goblin Lunar Emperor when Ma'al Drakar was first introduced to us. Five Heads in Five Days. The Goal, to paint the entire sculpt, including base and terrain piece in under 120 consecutive hours. That is a full five days, using nothing larger than a size 0 brush to apply paint to the figure. The Official rules give a full week of seven days, but I, being completely insane, have decided to attempt to shave two days off that, in honor of the dragons five headed stature. I honestly do not know if it is possible for me to do, and retain any sense of sanity. So, come along for the ride, at best, we get to see a feat of daring do conquered, at worst, you get to watch my mind degrade even farther. For you the viewer, I would call that a win/win.

we are now one hour (and a bit) into day 3 and I think I am winning. Not to get ahead of myself of course, but today I spent the whole day at my desk, with only a few breaks, and lost all track of tim

well, I should be painting more, but I just got home from karate and the spirit is willing, but the body is...three quarters dead at this point. Anyway, what's a WIP without pictures. You can see w

and...I'm moving of start until tomorrow evening, unless it rains. It's been a long day, and I really don't feel like starting of on an exhausting project, while already tired out. 


Wise decision. Ma'al is a serious beastie, and you'll want to be in top fighting condition when you enter the ring! 


As for attempting to do it in 5 days...dang. I see that the insanity is already beginning to set in. 


I salute you, sir, and wish you the very best of luck in this mad adventure!

You didn't take advice from this guy, did you?



but mine does not involve turnips



it is ten minutes to eight, at 8:00 pm Mountain Standard, I shall begin.

Here we have my weapons for the upcoming battle. Several brushes size  or smaller, some new, many not. And the secret to my plan. Pre selected and mixed primer/basecoat combinations. Now, as I fire up my playlist. Let the battle begin

      I decided to do the Mystic Circle so I could do all kinds of occult and folk horror scenarios.
      Currently "cooking" in the utility sink. The base parts were pretty warped. I may glue them to some foamcore for a little extra stability, but mostly traced, because I need to keep them " modular" for storage (the arches, I think they still qualify as dolmens, but I forget, will get pulled on and off. Unless it really doesn't work ).

      This will likely be an all June project, because I had an unexpected computer death and porch reno and need to deal with that.

      Some quick paints for the table. The pirate is a good demonstration of why I don't try sculpting - in addition he had a lot of casting problems in his legs and feet, so.... he will do but I kind of cringe. The shroud was a very quick paint - I cut the hands off, because it seemed more creepy that way

      More from May - the cultist pair 77518. I also added in my other recently painted pair (77351) with cirlce and I think they make a nice grouping.

      My first time painting a chibi figure.  Probably not the last.  Painting this made me feel happy.

      My 3 year old had been exploring my basement paintbstation and fallen in love with the "elephant. " Yesterday I glued and primed it for painting. About 60% got covered in rainbow splotches of  craft paint
      before child abandoned the project to play with recently varnished terrain.

      I smoothed out all the blobs of paint to vaguely cover everything in a greenish/pinkish/brownish grey.

      We may paint more, or else I'll paint some eyes and seal it.
